Footnotes

  • Fan Luzeng is famous for the pewter-encased teapots he produced during the mid Qing dynasty. Fan's works were commonly incised by scholars with poems or other scholar's taste subject such as the 'three friends of winter'.

    The four-character seal reads 'Made by Fan Luzeng'.
    The inscription is a poem, which can be paraphrased as:
    'Zheshe (lit. 'bird's tongue' tea) has not experienced the March rain...
    Longtuan (or 'longjing' tea) already tastes good in spring'.

    Another pewter-cased teapot made by Fan Luzeng and incised by Xiao Shan was sold at China Guardian, 21 November 2010, lot 2147.
